5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Super friendly staff, very helpful with recommending and arranging tours that were flexible at good value. Right in between and close to both Thamel district and Durbar Square. Hot showers with great water pressure. Full power most of the time, much better in this regard than other equivalent-priced accommodation. Nice menu with good quality food - try the room service.

This hotel is located just south of Themal and is a great spot to get to the rest of the city. The staff are very accommodating and assisted us with all requests. The breakfast is amazing with homemade yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, Nepalese porridge and the usual hot selection, including warmed fresh milk and really good bread. The hotel is... More

Hotel is in a great central location, walking distance to all the restaurants in Thamel. Rooms are nice, and restaurant is decent, with some nice outdoor seating. Did find it odd however that i had booked a price online through Agoda for several nights, and then when i extended my stay they charged me more than what i had booked... More

A peaceful and friendly place between the busy and tiring Kathmandu streets. The small garden is good for a relaxing break fast, the hotel is just 5 mints walk away from the busy Thamel street, 10 mints walk from Durbar square, but well isolated of traffic sounds, the girls at the counter are very friendly and helpful, as well the...

After trying a number of hotels in Kathmandu I finally found Hotel Ganesh Himal! It was much cheaper and had more amenities and nicer rooms than others! I had a standard room which was nice and peeked into deluxe which for $10 more looked spacious and much nicer. Great quiet location in Thamel. Beautiful lobbies, garden, rooftop, various public deck... More

Nice place, clean, friendly staff, good price but a little off the beaten path. This place has rooms of all kinds from cheap to mid priced. I stayed here on two different occasions and saw 3 rooms, they were all consistent and clean.There is also a nice garden dining area.

We stayed here six nights while working in Kathmandu. There are many good things about it - the staff are fantastic, the beds very comfortable, the rooms tasteful, the restaurant decent, filtered coffee in the morning, decent wifi, a generator to get through all the KTM power outages, very nice garden with little fires each evening and candles, nice sitting...
